Join us this Saturday, November 19, for a free tasting of “Leopold Bros. Liqueurs”.
In 1999, Scott and Todd opened a brewery on Main Street in Ann Arbor, Michigan called Leopold Bros. The operation quickly became popular, and they expanded to distilling, releasing their first spirits in 2001. They were well-known for their eco-brewing techniques, using organic ingredients, and effective management of water and waste byproducts. In 2008, operations moved to Scott and Todd’s home state of Colorado, where they continue to make their award-winning spirits in Denver.
This Saturday, we will be sampling the following selections:
Leopold Bros. Maraschino Cherry Liqueur: Leopold Bros. macerates then ferments small Marasca cherries from Croatia, distilling the resulting cherry mash. They add coriander and Montmorency cherry distillate and sweeten the blend with honey to create a soft and subtle liqueur with mild almond-like notes derived from the cherry pits. Adds a beautiful nose to classic cocktails.
Leopold Bros. Michigan Tart Cherry Liqueur: Created from one-of-a-kind Montmorency cherries, Leopold Bros. Michigan Tart Cherry Liqueur brings something new to classic cocktails like Manhattans, Singapore Slings, and Gin & Tonics. While most cherries are categorized as sweet or tart, the Montmorency cherries maintain a unique balance between the two flavors that is not found in any other varietal. The result is a versatile liqueur with exceptional flavor in both cocktails and cooking.
Leopold Bros. Rocky Mountain Blackberry Liqueur: Using blackberries from the northwestern region of the Rockies, this is a rich and complex liqueur perfect for cocktails, as a digestive, and also in cooking. Its deep purple color is derived purely from the juice of the blackberries.
Leopold Bros. New England Cranberry Liqueur: Leopold Bros. uses two different varieties of cranberries grown primarily in famous cranberry bogs when making their award-winning cranberry Liqueur. The cranberries are juiced and blended with their eaux-de-vie. A small amount of sugar cane is added is to balance out the tartness of the real cranberry flavor. Perfect for Thanksgiving!
